Workforce summit draws community leaders

In its role as a catalyst for community collaboration on STEM education, The STEM Foundation, with Educational Service District (ESD) 123, co-sponsored the second annual Southeastern Washington Future Workforce Summit in late 2020.

More than 200 regional business leaders, educators, parents, and students met virtually to discuss how to help students better prepare for and take advantage of future career opportunities.

Representatives from the region’s major employers shared how they are working to close the talent gap and how educators and parents can help improve students’ odds of career success.  Other sessions explored systemic financial and cultural barriers and solutions, how racism and discrimination impact student success and ways to become involved in building a career connected learning network in the region.
